Why Would You Pre-Plan Your Funeral?

No one likes to talk about death. It feels uncomfortable, but it is an important conversation to have. A pre-planned funeral is part of estate planning and relieves some burden for the people you leave behind. We plan for the special events in life to make sure they fit our personalities, wants, and needs – think of weddings, vacations, and retirements. Funerals are a significant event and there are many compelling reasons to be prepared.

  1. Guaranteed Price

    Inflation seems to always make things more expensive. When you prepay for your funeral, the price you pay today is guaranteed*, even if costs have gone up by the time of passing.

  2. Substantial Savings

    It is difficult to make decisions when you are grieving. Your family may end up spending more than they intended. By prearranging your funeral, you decide now what type of arrangements you want and how much you want to spend…at a time when decisions will be made calmly and intelligently. Consequently, your family will avoid emotional overspending at one of the worst times in their lives.

  3. Security

    Alberta law requires 100% of your money to be deposited with a registered third-party insurance in a trust, keeping your money safe and secure.

  4. Convenience

    You can make Advance Planning arrangements in our funeral home or in the comfort, privacy, and security of your own home. Flexible financing options are available.

  5. No Health or Age Restrictions

    You can participate in Oliver’s Advance Planning Program regardless of your age or health status.

  6. Transferability
